ClearCube Delivers Improved Patient Care at Redlands Community Hospital With Centralized Virtual Desktop Computing Solution

The Surgery and Maternal Child Services Building Leverages ClearCube's Sentral™ VDI Management System to Ensure High Availability and Reduce Deployment Time

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - January 30, 2008) - ClearCube Technology, the market leader in centralized computing solutions, today announced that Redlands Community Hospital, a 176-bed acute-care facility, has deployed ClearCube's Sentral VDI Management System in its new Surgery and Maternal Child Services building to manage more than 80 virtual machines throughout the facility. As a result of the deployment, Redlands' staff will benefit from the security, high availability and minimal carbon footprint of a centralized computing architecture and the most recent innovations in virtual desktop technology.

Relying on traditional PCs within its existing facility, Redlands took advantage of the new building construction and commissioned ClearCube to condense PCs from work areas in the NICU, Recovery Area and Nursing Stations, into Intel®-based blade form-factors and rack-mount them in a central location. The entire system uses ClearCube Sentral, the industry's only virtual desktop solution to manage both the physical and virtual resources within heterogeneous environments.

Sentral is used by customers to deploy the right solution for the right user type, while utilizing any back-end hardware or end-point user access device. Now, Redlands is able to manage mixed physical PC blades, provided by ClearCube, with VMware® ESX-enabled virtual machines, seamlessly incorporating virtualization technology into centralized desktop computing without sacrificing end-user performance.

"As part of our continuing effort to build the hospital of the future, Redlands is pleased to implement ClearCube Sentral flexible management software, enabling us to maximize the value of our investment in virtualization by providing our medical staff with the computing power necessary to successfully conduct their jobs," said Richard Gagnon, director, information systems, Redlands Community Hospital. "The hospital's main goal is to provide the quality of service our patients have come to rely on, which means that the staff allocated to managing IT is limited. Although we looked at other solutions, the ClearCube solution impressed us with its cost effectiveness, 24/7 uptime and the flexibility necessary to manage IT from one place and reallocate resources where necessary -- patient care."

"Redlands is visionary in seeing how the next wave of centralized computing technology -- the virtual desktop -- can be used to greatly improve patient care," said Rick Hoffman, president and CEO, ClearCube Technology. "Using ClearCube's comprehensive VDI solution, Redlands is compliant with HIPAA regulations by strengthening asset and data security and eliminating the security issues related to traditional PCs, which can easily be tampered with or stolen. Each PC blade is on its own network, allowing Redlands IT technicians to manage and secure all workstations anytime, from anywhere."

About Redlands Community Hospital

Redlands Community Hospital is a non-profit, 176-bed acute care facility. Although officially founded and incorporated in 1929, RCH history has roots dating back to 1903 when Redlands opened its first medical facility on Vine Street. Started by a small group of doctors, it relocated to another building on Nordina Street in downtown Redlands before moving to the hospital's present site at 350 Terracina Boulevard. The hospital is located in southwest Redlands, overlooking the valley. The original cornerstone is displayed near the entrance to the hospital today and serves as a reminder of those early pioneers in healthcare.
